This Top Trail starts next to the car park, at the base of Mount Frankland. There are a few options, you can climb to its peak for breathtaking views (a steep 1 kilometre walk), enjoy the walk trail around the base or combine both. The base of the granite mount is surrounded by towering Karri forest and superb summit views, this trail is sure to impress.
Start on the bitumen track and climb to the top of the dome. The climb is mainly concrete steps requiring a short ladder climb so a moderate level of fitness is required. The views overlooking the Karri forest and the Frankland River below are fantastic.
After descending, walk the 1.5 kilometre loop trail around the rock. The trail requires a bit of effort as it is a natural surface with some rocks and narrow rough trails to negotiate. This is one of the best granite and Karri areas in the south west.
Camping in Western Australia’s natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.
